Genstat – making your job easier

Genstat is a general statistics software package for education and research. Flexible and easy-to-use Genstat may be applied to any field of research. The user interface contains comprehensive menus to guide non-technical users to use statistics correctly and effectively. It also has a powerful programming language that can be used to develop new techniques and complicated experiments. Genstat provides a huge range of statistical procedures, data management, and graphical capabilities. It has powerful spreadsheet facilities for data storage and manipulation and an attractive graphics viewer that allows users to edit and interact with their plots.

    • Manage data on Genstat’s own spreadsheet
    • Compatible with Excel spreadsheet (import/export)
    • Illustrate data with graphics such as histograms, boxplots, scatter plots, line graphs, trellis plots, contour and 3-dimensional surface plots
    • Summarize and compare data with tabular reports, fitted distributions, and standard tests, such as t-tests and various non parametric tests
    • Transform data using a general calculation facility with a wide range of mathematical and statistical functions
    • Model relationships between variables by linear or nonlinear regression, generalized linear models, generalized additive models, generalized linear mixed models or hierarchical generalized linear models
    • Analyse experiments, ranging from one-way analysis of variance to complex designs with several sources of error variation, using a balanced-ANOVA or a REML approach (including the modelling of correlation structures)
    • Design investigations deciding on the sample size, or numbers of replicates, required to detect the anticipated treatment effects;
    • Identify patterns in data by means of multivariate techniques such as canonical variates analysis, principal components analysis, principal coordinates analysis, correspondence analysis, partial least squares, classification trees and cluster analysis;
    • Analyse results from stratified or from unstructured surveys;
    • Plot control charts, print Pareto tables and calculate capability statistics;
    • Analyse time series, using Box-Jenkins models or spectral analysis;
    • Analyse repeated measurements, by analysis of variance, or using ante dependence structure, or by modelling the correlation over time;
    • Analyse spatial patterns, using Kriging or spatial point processes. These techniques are useful in agriculture, ecology, genetics, medical research, and other areas of biology, as well as in industrial research and quality control, and economic and social surveys; in fact in any field of research, business, government or education where statistics are used.
